Would You Eat This Charcuterie Plate?

One of the hottest new restaurants in town is becoming well known for its charcuterie plate. The last time I was there I ended up with the plate in the photo. I loved every bit of it, but my friend was a bit squeamish about the white proscuitto on the left. It looked too fatty and she refused to eat it. Her loss was definitely my gain, and I was able to enjoy all of the porky goodness. What do you think, would you have eaten it?

Swedeybebe took the words right outta my mouth again. I'd die for salami, but that fatty stuff grosses me out totally. I hate any kind of fat, skin, bones except chicarones. Other than that white gunk, I'd order two.

Absolutely he// yes! I can't get enough of those italian meats. Little fresh mozerella, some bread and wine and that's one heck of a meal!

Well I don't eat meat so no I wouldn't but even if I did eat meat that would not be included. When I ate meat the only thing I liked was chicken lol

I'd try it. I've never had it so I'd have to see if I liked it. It looks good though.

I'm not a big eater so that really doesn't appeal to me.

This is not "white prosciutto"! This is lard. It's totally different. By the way i will not eat it. I am a vegetarian.

OK, I admit it! I am semi-unrepentant carnivore but that platter might make me think twice...probably right after I finished all those glorious cold cuts off! LOL :)

I don't eat pork anymore, but when I did I would have eaten this, and at least tried the meat on the left.

I'm not big into cold cuts...most of them are too fatty and salty for my tastes. I'm more of a cheese platter gal myself.

i usually love prosciuto, but the slices in this picture dont look all that appetizing to me! i am with your friend here :) i would have gobbled everything else though...
Jude-C Jude-C 9 years
Heck yes! And I would've gone for that prosciutto first--I would love to have some that fatty!

Coming from a girl who just ate proscuitto e melone for breakfast, the plate looks delish....but that first cut looks kinda ill. Other than that, prepare to fight!

I'm with ilanac on this. I'm not a veggie but this just looks disgusting. Maybe its because most of these are pork products.
